Get Bluetooth to work with the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.
This small freeware utility will try to install generic Microsoft driver for
your bluetooth adapter. The program is based on a widely known method of
patching %WinDir%\inf\bth.inf file.
It works for most (but not all) bluetooth adapters, both USB dongles and built-in. (See the list of bluetooth devices and hardware IDs known to work. Note that this list is not exhaustive.)
Before making changes to your system the program automatically creates a restore point. If anything goes wrong you can use Windows System Restore feature to revert all changes made to your computer.
Fantastic tool! We recommend it to customers of our bluetooth marketing software to resolve problems with bluetooth drivers.smartbluetoothmarketing.com
